Behind the scenes

PAL Canada’s Inter-Generational Arts & Entertainment Youth Masterclass Series

Through this inter-generational Masterclass experience for youth (14-30), especially Indigenous youth, PAL Canada is striving to promote volunteerism and mentorship opportunities among seniors. Throughout Behind the Scenes, we will work to increase engagement of seniors in our community through the mentoring of youth from coast-to-coast-to-coast in Canada, connecting talent nationwide in the process. This experience benefits the youth by providing an opportunity in a virtual classroom to learn from seasoned professionals within the arts and entertainment industry about great jobs and careers many have never heard of … yet! #KeepThatPassionAlive
